The last year of one of the most popular body style trucks in American history. 1972's are very difficult to distinguish from the prior year without checking serial numbers. One noticeable change is the inside rear view mirror is now glued to the windshield like modern day vehicles. Some new interior changes were also added, like fabric and door panel designs.



Viewed from the outside, the only two visual differences between the 1971 and 1972 models are the rearview mirror is now glued to the windshield and there is no black stripe around the grille.   Internal differences include a new door panel design and the addition of a strengthening screw on the inside of the door below the vent window division bar. New trim package Highlander offered.
